The best skin care products should contain the proper form of amino acids
The best amino acid skin care includes the L-form of amino acids. If the brand never states that it uses the “L-form” of amino acids, that means it uses a combination “L-form” amino acids and “D-form” amino acids. Despite what you may have heard elsewhere, science proves D-amino acids are not able to be utilized in amino acid skin care (Analytical Biochemistry). Ultimately, this means you are wasting your money on half (or more!) of the amino acids contained within your skin care.
The difference between “L-form” and “D-form” amino acids is a principle called chirality.
Without getting too scientific on you, do us a favor and look and your hands. Chirality is easily understood by the differences between your left and right hand. The left hand is a mirror image of the right hand. But the left hand cannot be superimposed, or laid upon, or configured in any way to be identical to the right hand. No matter how many different ways you orient the two hands, it is impossible for all the features of the hands to coincide.
The best amino acid skin care includes the right combinations of amino acids
It is your skin cells’ job to make collagen. But in order to make collagen, your skin cells need a steady supply of ingredients — namely, amino acids. When you are deficient in one or more of the 17 amino acids necessary to make collagen, elastin, and other structural proteins in the skin, you start to notice signs of aging, inflammation, and lackluster skin. As we age we start to lose production and retention of amino acids, collagen and elastin production stops and our skin begins to malfunction, resulting in wrinkles and discoloration.
The best amino acid skin care contains all 17 amino acids the skin needs to make collagen and other structural proteins within the skin. The 17 amino acids found in collagen are the actual building blocks of proteins like collagen and elastin which are necessary for healthy and beautiful skin.
The best amino acid skin care doesn’t skimp on amino acids
On an ingredients label, listings begin with the ingredient present in the highest concentration, and move downward to the ingredients in the lowest concentration. The base of the cream, which may also be known as the vehicle or the delivery system, is typically the ingredient present in the highest concentration. It is responsible to carry the other ingredients, creating the actual suspension. So just because water may comprise most of many products, it is usually for good reason.
Next up are the ingredients designed to benefit your skin. Many companies claiming to have “amino acid skin care” will not feature amino acids here, but more “fillers”. However, the best amino acid skin care starts to contain amino acids in high concentrations, second only to the base, AKA the vehicle or the delivery system.
Last are the ingredients that are typically like preservatives. For products that come from the U.S., keep in mind that any ingredient present under 1% concentration may be listed in any order, so long as it is listed after all of the other ingredients present at or above 1%. This means that a product may contain 0.00001% of the amino acid arginine and 1% EDTA, but arginine may be listed above EDTA on the label! It’s shocking how many skin care companies claim to have “amino acid skin care,” but the 1 or 2 single amino acids they include are so far down on the ingredients list!
In Summary: The best amino acid skin care uses the best in skin care science
The best amino acid skin care uses only the form of amino acids, the “L-form,” that your skin cells can actually utilize to make structural proteins that keep your skin looking young, beautiful, and firm. The best amino acid skin care contains all 17 amino acids that are necessary to make collagen and elastin. And the best amino acid skin care includes these amino acids in concentrations that have been shown in peer-reviewed scientific studies to actually have an effect.
AminoGenesis™ painstakingly purifies each of the 17 plant derived amino acids necessary to make your skin healthy and youthful looking. These amino acids are then carefully blended to match the optimum composition of collagen, giving your skin all it needs to become healthy and radiant looking. No other skin care formulation can achieve this level of perfection!
